infraestructures-transportG.png

The PhD program in Transport Engineering & Infrastructures deals jointly with knowledge issues related to transport, such as transport infrastructure and engineering, logistics organization and transport systems modeling, as well as urban and regional planning.

The program provides training at the doctoral level in scientific research methodologies for transport infrastructures and technical systems, logistics and urban services in the following fields of competence:

  • Network infrastructures planning and design
  • Mathematical analysis and numerical modelling of technical systems and their impact on the territory
  • Organization and operations in transport systems and logistics
  • Urban analysis of planning infrastructure networks with the territory
  • Economy, financing and evaluation of the construction of infrastructure networks and the exploitation of their technical systems

Who monitors my work?

The academic committee of the doctoral program is in charge of monitoring the student's work yearly.

When?
  • In June, students update and generate their Doctoral students activity report (DAD) at our virtual platform (Atenea PhD).
  • In July, the thesis supervisor must send the year's assessment report, the DAD and the updated research plan, if necessary.
  • In September, the Academic Committee assesses all students and issues a global assessment.
ATTENTION: Failing to submit the required documents will result in a FAIL score.
When will I know the result?

In September, when the Academic Committee issues the final results, students will receive an email to inform that the records are available at e-Secretaria.

Documents generated by the procedure
  • Official academic record

MORE INFORMATION

What is it?

A research plan is a document that briefly defines the research activity that will take place and guides the student through the process.

How do I write it?
When will I submit and defend my research plan?

During the 1st academic year, students must submit their research plan.

On the 2nd academic year, the plan is updated, if necessary, and then publicly defended in front of the assessing pannel.

Public defenses are scheduled within two calls:

  • in June (for students that have enroled for the first time in September).
  • in February (for students that have enroled for the first time in February's extraordinary call).

For specific dates, please contact the secretariat for each program.

What does the public defense entail?

The public defense consists of an oral exposition of the written Research Plan during no more than 20 minutes, followed by a 5-minute time for questioning or commenting on the part of the assessing pannel. The mark will be either "Satisfactory" or "Non satisfactory”. In case of receiving a "Non satisfactory" mark, the Doctoral Commission can offer the student up to 6 months to make the necessary amends.

The assessing pannel will consist of three doctors, two belonging to the Doctoral programme and a third one foreign to the programme. Neither the director of the thesis, nor the supervisor may be part of the pannel.

When?

From October 1st 2020 till September 30th 2021.

ATTENTION: The Support Unit to Doctoral Studies will not formalize thesis registrations on public or local holidays (which includes low-occupancy periods), or school holidays (21st-24th December 2020 and 28th-30th July 2021). Theses registered before September 30th 2021 will be considered part of the 2020-2021 academic year.
